Wow! I hadn't realized that I'd seen every winner since 1968 in the theater
(not on video). That's 27 years in a row of great movie choices. 40 out of
67. Not bad.
I spent so much time dancing right next to the leads that I figured I was GUARANTEED screen time. Many months later the film was released and I went to see it with my family. I was full of excitement about being seen on the big screen. We had to give the film a "Thumbs Down" review because they cut almost all of me out of it. I was able to spot my elbow in one scene and the top of my hair in another (I had a big afro at the time).
The editor must have sat there and said "Oh shit, there's that annoying guy again, cut!" No aesthetic sense there!
